Hi I'm Doug

I,m a convert, I joined the church at age forty as did my wife and two children, We are mormons

About Me

I,m a retired Archarologist, and have three children, thirteen grandchildren and 31 and two halves great grandchildren. I, eighty years old and still ride my mountain bike several times a week! My mom lived to be one hundred and she said that the secret was you have to keep moving!

Why I am a Mormon

I was converted to the church by studying a book called " Archaeology and Book of Mormon" As an archaeologist I had been studying the Mayan culture in Mexico and became fisinated by the history in the book of Mormon. I then was told that I needed to pray and read and ponder this book and ask god if it was true. when I did this the holy spirt confermed to me that it was true. I was biptised and recieved the holy ghost by one who had the arthoirty. I have sence learned that the Book of Mormon gives us such a great number of scriptures that help us to understand the Bible and thus better understand the lord path. I have learned beond a shadow of doubt that the lords church has been reistatlished on the Earth and that Elijah is now with us and that this is the seventh and last dispensation. I am so greatful to those that started me on this path and supported me along the way.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday and keep the sabbeth day holy. I am an assestant scout master and teach gospel principles each sunday. My wife and I have 5 familes that we visit each month to share the gospels and to watch out for each others needs.I have volunteered for the NPS at an interpretation archaeologist. I talk over the fence to all of my neighbors and watch out for any way that I might be able to serve them. My wife and I go on and participate in the camps for the Boy Scouts of America. We try to be involved in our community in any way that we can.
